Improves Visual Clarity for Fishing and Boating
The Costa Del Mar South Point sunglasses are designed to improve visual clarity for those participating in fishing and boating activities. The lenses are available with either mirrored or polarized options, both of which provide 100% UVA and UVB protection. The lens width is 59mm and the height is 51mm, providing ample coverage for the eyes. The bridge is 14mm and the temple length is 123mm.
The lenses are made of a lightweight plastic material that allows for optimal clarity and reduced eye fatigue. The frame is made of metal with a plastic nose bridge, providing durability and comfort. The frame has a double bridge design with aviator-style lenses, which provide a stylish look while offering protection from the sun
Modern Aviator Style with Double Nose Bridge
The aviator style of sunglasses was originally designed in 1936 by Bausch and Lomb for pilots. The teardrop shape of the lenses was meant to keep the eyes covered at all times and prevent being blinded by the sudden burst of sunlight. The style caught on with servicemen during the war and eventually became popular in Hollywood.
The appeal of aviator sunglasses lies in their ability to make a statement. The thin metal frames and convex lenses give them a look that is both stylish and sophisticated. Additionally, aviators work well with all kinds of casual outfits and can be found in a variety of finishes, including gold, chrome, gunmetal, plastic, acetate, and horn.
100% UV Protection & Polarization
The sun emits harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation that can damage the eyes and the skin. Prolonged exposure to UV radiation can lead to a condition called photokeratitis, which is similar to a sunburn of the eye and can cause temporary vision loss. It can lead to more serious conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and cancer of the eye.
Ultraviolet radiation is divided into three categories: UVA, UVB, and UVC. UVA rays make up about 95% of the UV radiation that reaches the earth’s surface. Although they are less intense than UVB rays, they are more prevalent and can penetrate clouds and glass. They are responsible for tanning and premature aging of the skin.
UVB rays make up about 5% of the UV radiation that reaches the earth’s surface. They are more intense than UVA rays but do not penetrate glass as easily. They are responsible for causing sunburns.
UVC rays are present in very small amounts in sunlight but are completely absorbed by ozone layer before reaching the earth’s surface. However, man-made sources such as welding torches and mercury lamps emit large amounts of UVC rays which can be harmful if exposed to them for long periods of time without proper protection
Hydrolite Material for a Secure and Comfortable Fit
A good fit is important for sunglasses because they need to stay in place while you are wearing them. If they don’t fit well, they can slip off your face or be uncomfortable to wear.
The Costa South Point sunglasses have a hydrolite material on the nose pads and temple tips. This material helps them grip your skin and stay in place, even when you are sweating. The sunglasses have a metal frame that is adjustable. This means you can customize the fit to your own face.
Hydrolite is a type of silicone rubber. It is often used in medical devices because it is soft and grippy.
Some benefits of hydrolite material are that it is comfortable, durable, and does not absorb sweat. This makes it ideal for use in sunglasses
Water Resistant and Hydrophobic Coating for Active Wear
Hydrophobic coating is a water resistant and repellant treatment that is applied to surfaces. This type of coating is designed to cause water to bead up and roll off of the treated surface. Hydrophobic coatings are often used on materials that are exposed to water or moisture, such as clothing, automotive paint, and glass.
Hydrophobic coatings work by creating a barrier between the material and the water. This barrier causes the water to bead up and roll off of the surface, instead of being absorbed into the material. Hydrophobic coatings can be applied to many different types of materials, including plastics, metals, glass, and fabrics.
Smudge Protection and Oleophobic Coating for Easy Cleaning
Oleophobic coating is a clear substance that is applied to the surface of lenses or other materials to make them resistant to oil. It works by repelling oil and other liquids, making them easier to clean and less likely to smudge.
Oleophobic coating works by repelling oil and other liquids, making them easier to clean and less likely to smudge. The coating creates a barrier between the lens and any oily substances that may come into contact with it. This makes it more difficult for fingerprints, makeup, and other oily residues to adhere to the lens surface.
The main advantage of oleophobic coating is that it makes lenses easier
Reduced Glare with Mirror Coatings
Glare is a bright light that can cause problems with your vision. It can come from the sun, headlights, or even reflections off of water or snow. Glare can be very bothersome and can cause headaches, eyestrain, and even temporary blindness.
Glare affects your eyesight by making it difficult to see. It can cause you to squint or close your eyes, which can lead to headaches, eyestrain, and even temporary blindness. Glare can make it difficult to drive at night because it can reduce your ability to see clearly.
Glare blocking is important because it helps reduce the amount of light that enters your eyes. This helps reduce the amount of glare that you experience and makes it easier for you to see clearly. Glare blocking helps reduce the amount of eye strain that you experience.
Comfortable Rubber Nose Pads
Sunglasses that feature adjustable nose pads are important for a few reasons. First, they allow the glasses to be adjusted to fit the contours of your face more accurately. This helps to ensure that the glasses will stay in place and not slide down your nose. Second, adjustable nose pads can help to reduce glare from the sun by keeping the lenses closer to your eyes. And finally, adjustable nose pads can help to reduce eye fatigue by ensuring that the lenses are positioned in just the right spot.
The Costa South Point sunglasses feature comfortable rubber nose pads that can be adjusted to fit a variety of different face shapes and sizes. The frames are designed to wrap around your head, providing you with a snug and comfortable fit.
Lightweight & Durable Lenses
Polycarbonate is a type of plastic that is lightweight yet durable. It is often used in sports equipment and eyewear because it can withstand high impact and is less likely to shatter than other types of lenses.
Polycarbonate lenses are ideal for people who participate in activities where there is a risk of eye injury. They are scratch-resistant and provide 100% UV protection.
Rust Resistant Metal Frames with Hinges
TR-90 nylon is a type of plastic that is often used in the manufacturing of sunglasses frames. It is a lightweight and durable material that is resistant to heat and chemicals.
TR-90 nylon frames are very strong and durable, yet they are still lightweight. This makes them ideal for sunglasses as they will not add too much weight to your head and can withstand being dropped or knocked around. The material is resistant to heat, so you don’t have to worry about your sunglasses warping in the sun.
